It’s that time of year again: The weather is warming, the skies are blue, let’s grab some grub at Reno Food Truck Fridays to feed that hunger in you. My horrible rhyming aside, this bimonthly, gastronomic event is back in town. Setting up shop every first and third Friday of the month, Reno Food Truck Fridays (RFTF) is a great way to get outside, indulge in a variety of gourmet food, and listen to local music. The next RFTF is Friday, May 17, but if you can’t make it then the event goes through October, so there are plenty more Fridays ahead.
RFTF takes place downtown at CitiCenter Plaza, 40 E. 4th Street (the corner of 4th and Center), which is the former RTC bus terminal. It runs from 5-9 p.m., so you can head there right after work or rest up a bit before heading downtown. You could even make a whole evening of it and catch a Reno Aces game.
This year’s lineup of food trucks includes: GourMelt Grilled Cheese, Kenji’s, Sauce Wagon, Red Truck Tahoe, Traffic Jam, Mellow Yellow Food, Lazy Sundae, Battle Born, Waffle Wagon, St. Lawrence Pizza Co., Island Ice, Mount MoGrit, and Taster’s Paradise (check out Reno Tahoe Food Trucks for some of the menus from the aforementioned trucks). There is also the Tumblebus and a beer garden courtesy of Great Basin Brewing Co. (according to Standley White of About.com). New this year will be The Biggest Little Fashion Truck which will be selling designer clothes and accessories. Now you can shop and eat at the same time in downtown Reno.
So, if you’re looking for something different and a chance to support local businesses, head downtown to Reno Food Truck Fridays. Here’s the upcoming schedule:
